Engineering News: The Improved Solar-Powered Pistol - Book 1 Icon #37961 By Oren Portello
Thanks to 'Storm' for contributing with valuable assistance during the period I've been researching this subject. Remember the golden rule: Using components of roughly the same quality is always a benefit.
My original project was simply trying to find a way to improve the solar-powered pistol that is handed out to many of the new arrivals on this planet. I am by no means a tight person, but I was early in my engineering career attracted to weapons that use no ammunition. It has to do with saving resources. It is an environmental concern, but for a clanner it is also about being self-supported. Last I checked, 94 percent of the import to Rubi-Ka was still controlled by Omni-Tek in one way or another. All imported ammunition is for use with Omni-Tek, and most of what the clans use is from stocks built up during the last conflict.
Anyway, those were my personal reasons and my initial motivation for doing all those experiments. As time passed the project has got a life of its own, and the end result is far better than what I ever had hope of creating. Let us begin:
1. -Solar-Powered Pistol-
In case you've destroyed your 'newbie pistol', I've traced the process used for creating it: First you need to build a simple, solar-powered computer. That can be done by attaching an 'Auto Targeting Computer -IIR 4 -Ultra-' to a 'Basic Calculator'. The result is called a 'Solar-Powered Weapon Supervisor'. The supervisor has no power unless it is given some means to control matter. To do this you combine the 'Solar-Powered Weapon Supervisor' with a 'Jandawit Cleanup Cluster'. The cluster has the added effect that it keeps the weapon clean whenever its nanobots are not used for gathering molecular sized pieces of matter. The result, the 'Solar-Powered Weapon Device' is lastly combined with an 'Irreparable River MV' to get the 'Solar-Powered Pistol'. NOTE: Only the 'irreparable' River MV will be possible to use with this device. More 'alert' pistols will simply reject it.
2. -Solar-Powered Tinker Pistol-
This improvement will increase the damage of the pistol and also create an advanced connection to the host. The first step is to modify a 'Jensen Personal Ore Extractor' with a 'Screwdriver' to cut the connection between the wave sensors and the drilling arms. The result is a 'Modified Jensen Ore Extractor'. To control the function of the arms and focus the use of the wave sensors I used a 'Robotic Self-Preservation System'. I found plenty of them on a scrap heap in Newland. Combine the 'Robotic Self-Preservation System' with the 'Modified Jensen Ore Extractor' to get a 'Unstable Preservation System'. To stabilize the system, insert a common 'Notum Chip' or a 'Notum Fragment' to get a 'Stable Preservation System'. Finally, attach your 'Stable Preservation System' to the 'Solar-Powered Pistol' to get the 'Solar-Powered Tinker Pistol'.
